  • Nellie was a very good host! Our stay, even thug short (two nights), was pleasant and confortable. Her place si cozy and clean. She is very helpful with tips and things to do. She also help us finding a great taxi company to move us around Nairobi and pick us up from the airport. If by any chance Nellie hires the same company, try to ask for Oliver as your driver, He is awesome as well. Nairobi is a really big city and with chaotic traffic; it is not easy to move around, we strongly suggest you find someone to move you around. Nellie's place has a great, safe and peaceful location; but we decided to use the recommended cab company instead of walking around and finding matatus.

  • Тихий район Найроби, до центральной части города можно дойти пешком. Хозяйка очень доброжелательная и отзывчивая женщина, помогала нам во всем, от встречи в аэропорту, до заказа столика в ресторане. Рекомендую.

  • Nellie was a wonderful host. She organized out airport pick up and all travel within Nairobi. She lives in a wonderful gated community in a safe and charming home. Nellie has two guest rooms that she rents. Both share a common bathroom in the hallway. Nellie ensured that we safely traveled within the city. Ingredients for a breakfast were provided to us but not the cooked breakfast itself. Nellie gave us access to the fridge and kitchen, pots and pans, we made our own breakfast and cleaned up as well. We had a good stay in Nairobi.

  • Great place- just as promised! Nellie was a great host and incredibly helpful on local tips. She also provided breakfast (and delicious local cuisine). Great location as well.

  • If you have the chance, stay with Nellie! The room and apartment are beautiful and in a great, safe location - I was working in the city center during my stay and walked in every morning along a beautiful tree-lined street. But the best staying here is Nellie's hospitality - she is fun, kind, and warm - and an AMAZING cook! I highly suggest guests pay a little extra for some home cooked Kenyan meals - and ask to try Nellie Pilli - it's the best! Nellie is also really helpful figuring out the city and suggesting things to do. There is really honest cleaning staff who can keep things tidy for you, but if you ask for your room to be kept private, no one will step foot in it (I left expensive laptop, video camera etc in my room unlocked all the time). All in all, this was an 11/10 stay, and I wholeheartedly recommend anyone to stay here.

  • Beautiful, spacious and spotlessly clean apartment in a good location. Also, Nellie is a very warm and welcoming host. Thank you Nellie for a great stay.
